The final webinar in APHA’s Advancing Racial Equity series will raise awareness of the ongoing impact of environmental racism on the health and well-being of Black, Indigenous and people of color in the U.S.
- Address historic and systemic issues (e.g., redlining, toxic waste siting, zoning policies) that have disproportionally impacted communities of color, including social, economic, and health implications of these practices;
- Discuss the importance of environmental justice initiatives to mitigate inequity and how public health professionals can address environmental racism; and
- Present strategies and frameworks to address environmental racism, such as health-in-all-policies, just transition, and cumulative impacts policies to curtail future health disparities.
